Description of the painting by Ivan Shishkin Forest felling

Russian artists have always sought to celebrate in their paintings the beauty and greatness of all nature, which for many years has been the subject of admiration. It was one of these works, which gave rise to a new trend in the art of painting, was Shishkin’s painting “Felling”. And this is absolutely not by chance, because the author himself was born in a picturesque corner of the country, in the city of Elabuga. Therefore, looking at the picture, we clearly see that in front of us lies the majestic coniferous forest, represented by tall spruces, trees and other trees.

This is typical for the northern and taiga places of our homeland. But some think about the question: why does the forest give more associations to the national treasure than the plain? The fact is that forests represent the wealth and wealth of the entire Russian people, because they are more practical and beneficial to life. They give firewood to man in the form of sawed trees, paper and more. Therefore, many were seduced by this beauty and inaccessibility. Moreover, it was always man who had to survive in such conditions. The painting was written in 1867, when there were coups in the laws.

Therefore, the forest has become for many protection and support. People learned to build houses from wooden bars, so it became much more convenient to live. But the forest was beautiful not only in consumer relations, but also could give spiritual peace and faith in the best. Tall trees, slender pines will help you to plunge into the abyss of simple life. If you look closely, you can see that the landscape of the picture is painted in the afternoon. After all, it is clearly seen that the trees give shade according to the movement of the sun. It illuminates them from the best side, and we see how the beauty and beauty of fir trees opens before us.

The pair have already been cut down, but nothing stands still, so life goes on. Favorite storyline in the picture was the theme of ferns, which majestically spread their leaves and in the foreground were in the shadow of the trees. And therefore perfectly harmonize with each other.
